I have an 86 accord, no spark, engine cranks but doesn't fire. Replaced coil and distributor, still no spark. It's in a sand rail so not using factory connectors. Maybe wiring?

Check for sparks. If no sparks, test crankshaft sensor. If sparks good, check fuel pressure at injector rail. Not sure which engine you have...tbi versus mfi.

Ignition spark


You need to replace the TFI module (on outside of distributor) and the distributor pickup coil inside the distributor.

No fire in coil pack.


Was the timing chain damaged ?
Did you have spark from the coil before you replaced the other parts ?
Do you have battery voltage on the positive side of the coil with the key on and in crank mode ?
Is the coil wire not sparking, or are you not getting spark at the plugs ?
Is the distributor rotor turning when you crank the engine ?

Ive got a 1994 honda accord and i cant get any fire out of the coil. its getting power to it. i put a new coil on it but still no fire


You may have a bad connection on the out side of the coil. Make sure it is connected with the right polarity, The positive terminal should be connected to the ingnition with a negative earthed battery.
Take the spark lead out of the distributor and hold it close to the engine block, crank the engine and see if you have spark then, You may be losing it at the distributor.

1990 honda wont start or crank, the lights dont come on, head or inside the car


The distributor in the hondas has a function of also engaging the coil to create spark. No spark = no fire. Perhaps take a plug out, leave the lead on, hold it with INSULATED pliers against a solid metal part of the engine and get someone to crank the engine over.

If the plug sparks - coil and firing switch OK. If no spark, check coil first - remove main + feed lead from coil terminals and check on a meter for power with key on but NO motor cranking. No power = faulty distributor/firing switch.No other ideas sorry!

If it won't turn over you may want to check Battery cables for tightness and/or corrosion Starter solenoid Neutral or clutch safety switch

My truck was running good when I parked it but now it will not fire, I have replaced the cap, rotor and coil but still not spark. I have fuel at the rail and the engine cranks. What next?


Replace the ignition module,make sure the rotor button is turning,remove the cap,and turn over the engine,if the rotor button is not turning,then,the timing chain is broke.

1992 HONDA ACCORD WILL CRANK BUT NOT START


No spark is uasually caused by a faulty coil or the trigger unit,both are inside the distributor. Get a used distributor fron a scrap yard (about $4o) and replace yours.Remove the dis.cap and turn the engine until the rotor is pointing to fire # 1 cyclinder,and mark the exact position of the base before removing from the block." Do not turn the engine" Install the other Dist. with the base in exactly the same position and the rotor pointing exactly to # 1 cyclinder. Note. Failing to install the other dist.exactly the way you took the first one out will throw the timing out!!!!!
Be doing all of this be sure there is no spark.
